A very successful Châteauneuf, with jammy, spicy fruity notes; very rich, yet still well balanced. More info

Guigal's Châteauneuf-du-Pape vines flourish on these legendary "pudding stone" pebbles which soak up the heat accumulated during the day and continue to heat the vines by night. The vines are over fifty years old, and the wine is matured for 36 months in oak barrels. It has a deep, dark red colour. On the nose, aromas of ripe red berries and spices appear. On the palate, the attack is direct, with supple tannins, and the wine opens out with real complexity and power.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Guigal serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Filet de boeuf sauce perigourdine, Gigot dagneau de lait aux herbes, Omelette aux truffes.

Information about domain Guigal

Located in Ampuis, the cradle of the Côte-Rôtie, Domaine Guigal was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal. Guigal has contributed enormously to putting this appellation on the map, an appellation that was nearly lost to the phylloxera crisis at the close of the 19th century, the economic crisis of 1929 and the the two World Wars. In 1961, the young Marcel Guigal took over the reins. Driven by a desire to produce high quality wines, this young vigneron undeniably changed the perception of Côte-Rôtie wines. Nowadays, the brilliant enologist Philippe Guigal – son of Marcel – runs the domain. The house produces three cuvées “prestige” - La Landonne, La Mouline et La Turque – a sublime trilogy which wine connoisseurs go mad for. The vineyard now also runs over to the Rhone valley’s prestigious appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Saint-Joseph, Hermitage, Gigondas, Crozes-Hermitage. They are all vinified and matured in the cellars of Ampuis. Marel Guigal and his son Philippe continue to devote considerable care to all of the winemaking process: low-intervention viticulture, work done entirely by hand, given the parcel’s situation on a 45 degree slope, vinification in temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats, élevage in new oak barrels for 42 months, to allow the wine to fully develop its aromas etc. The headquarters of the domain is the Château d'Ampuis, a jewel of the Renaissance which is listed as a Historic Monument. The Guigal signature is one of the most emblematic of the Rhone valley, it shines for its infallible constancy and rigorous grape production.
